MMW Global Seminars

MMW Global Seminars (GS) are intensive five-week academic programs offered in the summer. GS programs fulfill general education requirements and, in addition, include upper-division credit which will help advance participants to graduation. GS programs are not limited to students of any college at UCSD or even to UCSD, rather they are open to students in good standing at any college or university. Each GS program consists of a package of two UCSD courses (8 credits total; students must enroll in both classes), taught by a UCSD professor. All lodging, site-visits, intra-city transportation, and many meals are included. Classes generally meet on three days of the week with excursions after class and longer excursions on days without class meetings. For information about the GS programs and the application process:
